My 4 year DD keeps picking her nose and giving herself awful nosebleeds, especially at night. I know she picks because she leaves her "artwork" on the wall and sheets, and she admits it. I seem to have managed to stop her displaying the fruits of her labour by talking about it and she was embarrassed that I knew what she had been doing but I can't stop the nosebleeds.
I am at my wits end changing the beds, scrubbing the carpets and sorting her out in the night. I have tried nicely nicely, and now I am trying being cross but neither way is having an effect. I leave tissues in the bedroom for her to blow her nose but she won't.
She's seen the doctor who prescribed an antibiotic cream which worked for a while stopping the bleeding but they won't cauterise it if she picks it. And I am convinced the picking is the problem and it would heal if left alone.
